    Out of 6 eggs, one was fertile and started to hatch. It pipped 2 days ago and zipped 1/3 of the way round but hasn't moved on any further in the last 24 hours. The chick has its beak stuck out of the egg and is still tweeting but less frequently... is it wise to intervene or an I just being impatient?

    I think you might have to intervene. Hope it hatches soon.

    New fuzzy bum completely out of his shell tweeting in the incubator!
    I chipped all the way round the egg and he had pushed himself out within half an hour! Thanks for your quick advice! Me and my chickens are happy that you were so quick to reply!
